By now you are probably in the swing of being pregnant and you may be in the ‘honeymoon’ period, with lots more energy and a renewed sense of well-being. Now is the time to start communicating with your baby on a much deeper level.
Screening tests should be out of the way and you will probably be feeling much more confident about the health of your baby. Ultrasound scans will have given you those first precious glimpses of what he or she looks like, but whatever image you have in your mind, you can now use it to deepen your emotional bond.
